I really liked the combination of violet, blue, teal and pink that was spotted at the Adam Lippes A&W 2009 show at New York Fashion Week. These colors are great for a spring look and you can easily do a toned down version of it for everyday wear.


What I Used

* Estee Lauder Nutritious Vita-Mineral Makeup SPF10 in Intensity 2.0
* MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer in NC30
* Anastasia Highlighting Eyebrow Kit to fill in eyebrows
* MAC Prep + Prime Eye in Light as a base
* MAC Softwash Grey Pigment on entire eyelid
* MAC Bell Blue Bottom Pigment lightly on outer corner
* MAC Teal Pigment on lower eye
* Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in Black along upper lash line
* Ipum Strip False Lashes on top
* L’oreal Telescopic Clean Definition Mascara in Black on lower lashes
* MAC Mineralize Blush in Pleasantry high on the cheekbones
* Stila All Over Shimmer Power in #1 to highlight
* MAC Myth Lipstick

  1. you always have such great looks! i’d comment more (sorry i seem like a stalker xP) but your page just takes so long to load! :| i LOVE your top though :D

  2. Phyllis,
    I tried to look up your eyelashes, but I could not find the brand.
    Where did you get them ?

  3. omg. i love your FOTD, i love everything about you… keep up the good work, because i love this site.

  4. Thanks Sarah =) Do you mind telling me what browser you use?

  5. Loan,

    I got the false lashes from a local Korean market.

  6. Super nice as always.
    I’m a bit jealous, I wish I’d have the Anastasia Eyebrow Kit too <3

  7. I’m not too fond of this look actually. The eyebrows are a bit too unnatural for my liking and the turquoise colour under your eyes are overpowering them as opposed to enhancing them.

  8. Oo, I actually prefer your take on the look rather than the model’s. Gorgeous as usual and keep up the good work.


  9. i love this look.
    thank god for ur blog cuz i just started working at a place where i must wear makeup…and im not so creative.

    I use u as a reference:)

  10. nice look! I also didnt like the turquoise, it makes your eyes smaller, but everything else rocks!

  11. Hi Phyllis,

    Your color coordination is amazing! The red shirt really compliments the nude lip look you have… Can you refer to where I can get the shirt you are wearing in this picture? Thanks Phyllis.

  12. Gorgeous as usual! Love the eyes and lips!

  13. i love your eyelashes!

  14. hi phyllis,
    i was wondering if there will ever be a lashes custom purchases as your lash collections are sooooooo pretty yet impossible to find. thanks

  15. Thanks everyone for the compliments and criticism =)

  16. Sarah,

    I got the top from Forever 21.

  17. Lieu,

    I have easy access to the Korean lashes so I can cp them for you.

  18. If you ask me you look much better than her. Great job!

  19. Very gorgeous take on the look. I noticed that you put the blue on the bottom. Very cute!

  20. are those circle lens? what color are they?

  21. Grace,

    Those are not circle lens. I’m just wearing Freshlook’s Colorblend in Green.

  22. CUTE!

  23. Gorgeous look! i love your twist on it!
